Work Overview

The foxtrot is a dance which reached its height of popularity in the 1930s. The composer says, "In writing this piece, I first of all learned the steps of the foxtrot and listened to music created for it. The sounds remain wonderfully evocative and I have tried to re-create the mood, with its classical references combined with cheeky rhythms and colourful harmonies."inspired by the moods of a tabby cat, the music moves from sleepy to extremely lively.
